Morocco is amazing. The Widiane Resort & Spa in the Atlas Mountains is the place for some well deserved pampering and relaxation.
The resort is three hours from Marrakech and as you meander around dusty roads, you catch your first glimpse of a stunning turquoise lake that lays at the foot of the hotel. This view is one that you see every morning as you sample the wonderful array of foods at breakfast.
Pamper yourself in the Thai spa, before taking a dip in the infinity pools, or relax with a cocktail in the Royal purple Karma lounge, adorned with Buddhas big and small.
Then take a hike into the Atlas mountains,
Or take a leisurely boat ride across the lake.
The hotel even gives you a chance to test your culinary skills with a traditional moroccan dish.
Whatever you choose to do, the hospitality within the Widiane is second to none. It's a beautiful Moroccan style resort in a stunning location.
Then once rejuvenated, it's back to the city.
The medina in Marrakesh is a labyrinth of lanes. The guide books warn of locals weaving through on noisy motorbikes, but the reality really isn't that bad. Moroccans are welcoming and like anywhere you need to keep your wits about you, but mingling with the locals and bartering with shop keepers is all part of the culture. In the maze of souks you can buy anything from stunning art, embodied cushions and leather handbags, or just take a rest and sip a mint tea within one of tiny shops.
Staying in a Riad will compliment your moroccan experience, with traditional surroundings and a natural courtyard, a riad is a welcome oasis within the busy streets.
Morrocco is romantic, stunning and once experienced, is never forgotten.
